They were very professional, prompt, wrapped all of my furniture and took great care with all of my stuff. They charge a flat rate, so no surprise expenses, and they didn't try to hurry my move. I am moving again soon and will use them again.

This was the second time I've used incredible hulk movers and I was once again very pleased with their services. They were very punctual, showed up about 10 minutes early which was wonderful. They were able to completely move our 2 bedroom apartment in around 2 hours. Very nice guys and they took direction extremely well. The quote I was given was on point. I would hire them again in a heaetbeat. I definitely recommend this company for any of your moving/relocation needs

Grandview Moving was great. I talked with Matt over the phone to schedule, and he was always very friendly and helpful. I had to reschedule last minute, and they were super accommodating. They did the move super quick with just 2 guys, and even helped me set up my w/d. Their prices were much better than some other quotes I got.. I'm very glad I went with Grandview Moving.

I was very pleased with their work. Very professional guys. There was no damage to my walls or funitures while moving. It took them 10 hours to move an entire home to a home. I think it was a very reasonable time. I will definitely recommend them!

The folks at You Move Me—Dennis, Dennis Jr, and Zac—were absolutely delightful to work with. Dennis walked through the project with me and helped me make decisions. They arrived on time for both days of the two-day project, ready to work. They worked quickly and thoughtfully, keeping us informed each step of the way. Their work quality was amazing. For instance, they packed and moved two curio cabinets, each stuffed with fragile family heirlooms, setting them up with everything more or less where it started, everything intact. Amazing. Mostly, though, I was quite impressed by how they understood the big picture of the project and how they adapted their work to it. We were moving my mother into an assisted living facility. This takes care and compassion, and parts couldn't be rushed. They took the time to do everything as it needed to be done. They took what was a very difficult day and made it much easier for all concerned. I wouldn't be surprised if another mover could have done the job cheaper. But I would be very surprised if anyone could have done the job better. They really understand that they aren't moving furniture, they are moving people. Their work was worth every penny of what it cost. When it comes time for the next Columbus move, you can bet I'll be in touch.

I've been working with First Responder for over a year and through a series of projects. I find them very easy to work with and accommodating of my many changes. Jason understands what I'm trying to accomplish in my yard and he has been very helpful in moving me forward. We have a long way to go but, I am relying on them to help me get there. I also find it very easy to refer them to others because they are courteous, responsive, professional, and flexible.

Pick Up Movers have a very interesting pricing system. They would quote you a price according to the amount of belongings you need transported. I think this method worked really well for me during my move. I didn't have a lot of things that needed to be moved so I opted for the services that I required and it really minimized the cost. They did a great job moving all my belongings. Nothing was damaged. It really paid off for me hiring these guys.

Justin the scheduling person and moving crew were great. Very professional, super friendly, and very efficient. They made quick work of moving all our stuff from storage back to our house. Next time I move (hopefully never, God willing), they'll be my first call. I highly recommend them.

Exceeded my Expectations!! Moving is never a fun experience, but Andrews made it 100% easier. I was so stressed about the entire move trying to sell our old home and finish building our new home and getting all the loose ends tied up in time. Our move consultant, Courtney came out to visit our home and she was WONDERFUL!!! She explained the whole process and gave us different packing options that best fit what we needed. I felt like a huge burden had been lifted off my shoulders after her visit. She had great suggestions of where to donate & sell items we didn't want and helped us better prepare for move day. We had Andrews come and pack our home and do our move the next day. The crew was great. They were courteous, respectful, and very knowledgeable. They packed my whole house in a day, I would have been packing for weeks, heck probably months!! Everything went smoothly, the crew was quick and efficient. It's amazing how hard they worked and still had a smile at the end of the day!! Will definitely recommend to friends, family, and co-workers that are moving!! Thank you!!

The overall experience was pretty good. We were under the impression that when we agreed upon a 9am start time that the movers would be AT our location at 9am. Unfortunately, we did not get started moving until close to 10am after they got the truck from UHaul and arrived at our place. The movers were friendly & hard working although a bookshelf was broken in the process and we were only given $20 off even though the bookshelf cost more than $20.

Terrell, along with Jeffrey and Henry, were kind, professional, and thoughtful. The person we moved is elderly. Their patience and understanding of the situation made this a smooth, calm process. Terrell and I were in constant contact to coordinate this move - very prompt, professional communication via Thumbtack. Thanks, gentlemen, for coming on a holiday weekend. I definitely recommend Terrell's company to all in need of moving!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do moving companies do?

Moving companies provide a range of services to help you physically move out of one residence and move into a new place. But moving companies can do so much more than just haul your belongings across town in a truck. The national average for moving company prices ($250-$350 per hour) reflects the range of services provided. Here are examples of all the ways moving companies can help:

  • Packing: Moving companies can pack your belongings for you. They typically charge a flat rate for both the box and the labor to pack the box. The more time-consuming the belongings are to pack, the higher the cost per box. For example, books could be $5 per box, linens $10 per box, and fine china and glassware $18 per box.
  • Specialty moving: Safely move a baby grand piano, a oversize aquarium, or other specialty items with the help of pro movers.
  • Storage: Many moving companies can store your belongings while you wait for a new home to be remodeled or closing of your new home to be finalized. If you’re moving long-distance, they often provide short-term storage free for a specific length of time, and a set rate after that (such as $60 per square cubic foot of storage space used).
  • Long-distance moves: No need to rent a trailer and move your things; a long-distance moving company can haul your belongings across the country for you. Typically they charge by the cubic foot for moves, with prices based on your destination.
  • Unpacking: Moving companies can even unpack your belongings for you after they have moved them. This is not as common, and will definitely increase the price, but can be helpful if you’re not able to tackle this task yourself.

How much does a moving company charge per hour?

When you’re ready to make a major move, it’s time to research moving companies’ prices. A moving company may charge on average anywhere between $25 and $100 per hour, per worker, for moving services. The price will vary with regional labor rates, local cost to do business, and the level of service the movers are providing. Nationally, the average hourly rate for a moving company is $250-$350 per hour. This price includes a range of pricing, from all-in service with four or more movers on site to standard hourly rates for one or two movers. Other factors that affect moving companies’ prices are packing, stairs (or elevators), and distance. For a full-service move, you pay movers to pack your belongings for you. You may pay for the cost of the moving boxes and an hourly rate per worker, and there may be additional charges for packing fragile items. Stairs will also add to your moving prices. Lifting and carrying boxes and furniture up and down stairs takes more time and creates more physical labor for the workers. Moving companies may charge flat rates for flights of stairs, such as $50-$70 per flight. A moving company may also charge a one-time fee for moving things via elevator, such as $75-$100. If parking is not accessible in front of your home or apartment building, there may also be an additional fee for the added distance to carry your belongings to the truck.

How much does it cost for long-distance movers?

Long-distance movers transport your belongings across the country for you. No more renting a trailer and road-tripping from state to state with your entire house hitched to your bumper. Long-distance movers make the move happen so you can fly to your new home, suitcase in hand, and wait for your furniture to arrive. Nationally, the average price range for long-distance movers is $1,490-$2,230. The distance you are moving and the number of cubic feet the movers have to transport will both affect cost. Another factor in long-distance moving costs is whether you choose to pay for an exclusive move or a consolidated move.

In an exclusive move, which is more expensive, your belongings are the only cargo on the moving truck. The movers travel directly to your new house and deliver your belongings on a scheduled day. A consolidated move is more affordable because the movers transport your belongings along with those of other people, saving them time and gas — which means you save money. The downside is that your belongings typically arrive with a two-week delivery window rather than on a prescheduled day. Read reviews to make sure you can trust the company with your possessions to ensure a peaceful moving process.

How much does it cost to move a one-bedroom apartment across the country?

Professional movers can handle the hard work of moving your one-bedroom apartment across the country for you. You can determine what your move will cost by learning the rate your movers charge per cubic foot and how they factor distance into the total cost. Cross-country movers typically charge based on your belongings rather than apartment size because that determines how much work they will have to do. For example, a studio apartment that is crammed full of things will take more work and moving truck space than the contents of a three-bedroom apartment with very little furniture.

Cross-country movers may also have varying rates, depending on where in the country you are moving. For example, a company may charge $5 per cubic foot for consolidated moves along the East Coast and $6 per cubic foot for consolidated moves from the East Coast to the central states or the West Coast. A one-bedroom apartment costs approximately $1,500 to move across the country.

How much should you tip furniture movers?

Moving furniture is hard work and potentially dangerous unless you’re properly equipped. For anyone not ready to handle their heavy oak armoire alone, professional furniture movers can safely and efficiently move your items to another room in your house or across town as needed. The national average cost to hire heavy furniture movers is $150-$200 per hour. This rate could include multiple furniture movers working as a team to move items such as beds, armoires, billiards tables, pianos, shelves, tables, entertainment centers and more. Hourly rates can vary by region. If your furniture movers have arrived on time, done a great job, kept your home and belongings protected from scratches and dings, and completed the move as planned, a tip will be greatly appreciated. Moving companies suggest approximately 10 percent of the total bill as gratuity for those doing local moving jobs, which is also a good guideline for tipping heavy furniture movers. If the total bill for heavy moving was $100 and two workers were onsite, consider giving them $10 total, or $5 each for a job well done.
